The motor starts immediately - no hesitation, no noise, no bad smells. It runs continually while the START button is depressed.

Also that 48 volts D.C close a set of contacts that can be measure with a voltmeter.You should get Zero volts when relay is closed and 120 volts a/c when open and if you get 120 volts a/c bad relay and this would cause whats happening to you.Motor can cause this also.But like i said i suspect motor but you may want to try this measurement first .

What did you find out with this dryer?

 

Kenmore gas dryer: PTS button has to be held, tumbles with no heat.
